Syria has given Russia new "material evidence" that Syrian rebels used chemical weapons in an attack on 21st August.


Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov also said a report by UN inspectors on the alleged use of chemical weapons was politicised, biased and one-sided.


He said the inspectors had only investigated the attack in Ghouta on 21st August, not three previous incidents.


The UN team found the nerve agent Sarin was used in the Ghouta attack.
